Love Notes

It's that time of year again when the pressure to find love, give love, express love is all measured in dollars and cents.

I was at a local florist this morning and saw a bouquet of roses in a plain vase for $99.

I am sure some of you will be quick to say that's a bargain. I understand some areas that same dozen would be so much more.

I must ask why a single rose was just $2.50 a few weeks ago and now, now love costs more.

My friend, I am writing to tell you love costs nothing.

While speaking to an older couple recently, I asked how they stayed in love for so long.

"Love notes," she replied.

"Oh, you leave each other little notes?" I followed.

They looked at each other and smiled.

"Not written notes. She looks at me and I note that it means, "I love you!"

"He touches my hand and I note that after all this time we still hold hands."

"She calls my name and like notes of music I hear her love song."

"He lies next to me in bed at night and I note his heart beats only for me."

They both laughed, smiled and he put his arm around her.

I noted how much in love they really are.

How much does love cost? Hold hands, smile, call their name.

Are you taking notes?
